Vespers for the Feast of the Assumption

Vespers for the Feast of the Assumption

Wednesday August 15th 7:30pm

The Choir of St Mary of the Angels will celebrate Vespers for the Feast of the Assumption.

The liturgy, which lasts for about 50 minutes, includes Latin psalms, the Gregorian antiphons and Palestrina’s Magnificat.

Following that will be a short, thirty-minute concert of music for the feast, and for the Feast of the Transfiguration, with music by Tallis, Tavener, Victoria, and including Monteverdi’s wonderful setting of ‘Beatus Vir’ with violins, and featuring our own choir soloists: Olivia Webb, Wendy Kale, John Sullivan, Paul Beres and Emmanuel Godinez.
